Breakfast tomorrow near LAX

I have an 8:30am flight out of LAX tomorrow morning and and am seeking a yummy breakfast somewhere nearby that opens EARLY. I'm open minded and ready. Thank you in advance for your suggestions fellow hounds!

  1. Which direction are you coming from? Are you parking in one of the long term lots like C or B?

      One good breakfast place in that immediate LAX area that gets overlooked here is The Grinder right on the NW corner of Sepulveda Blvd. and Manchester (you have to be on Manchester to enter their parking lot). They open ever day at 6 am.

      If you happen to be coming from the Santa Monica or West LA area then that opens up some other possibilities like Pepy's Galley (opens at 6 am) in the Mar Vista Bowling Alley on the NE corner of Grandview and Venice Blvd. ini Mar Vista or Dolores on Santa Monica Blvd. just west of the 405 Fwy and open 24/7 or the Pacific Dining Car on the SE corner of Princeton and Wilshire in Santa Monica open 24/7 or if you are coming from the South Bay then The Kettle on Highland in Manhattan Beach which is also open 24/7.

        I don't think they open until 7 am and that would be cutting it too close probably.

      2. As mentioned, Pann's is your best breakfast place but unfortunately opens at 7:00. They do have the best chicken wings and waffles ever.

        KJ's diner has excellent breakfasts at the Bowling Alley near Lincoln and Manchester. They open at 6:30. Pancakes and egg dishes are excellent.

        Dinah's at Sepulveda and Centinela off the 405, is open at 6:00. Good waffles and pancakes. Can't remember how the egg dishes were; I usually go Pann's or KJ's.

          at dinah's my recommendations are:
          1) the chile relleno omlette
          2) the baked german pancake
          3) the baked apple pancake
          4) the swedish pancakes

          i am not a fan of their buttermilk pancakes or any of the variations of their buttermilk pancakes.

        2. You could try Rutt's Cafe on Washington (and Lindblade, near Culver Blvd.) for some Hawaiian food. They open at 6:30, however, so that still might be cutting it close.

          1. If you are running late, you could also just just coffee or a snack on the ground level of Terminal 2. The international terminal also has a series of fast-food type places.
